Urban Corridor Consortium Task Force on Part-Time and Commuter Students. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ. Urban Corridor Consortium.
Ways that urban corridor campuses might respond to the increasing enrollment of part-time and commuter students were reviewed by the University of Wisconsin Urban Corridor Consortium Task Force on Part-Time and Commuter Students. Members of the consortia are the following University of Wisconsin campuses: Green Bay, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Parkside, Waukesha, and Fond du Lac. The task force's review included the following areas: the nature of the urban corridor student; why students are pursuing coursework; 1981 data collection to determine the general profile of the university student population in the urban corridor; personal, social, and cultural needs of part-time and commuter students; the need for student services; student activity and environmental needs; needs of adult students; faculty responsiveness; teaching methodology; class scheduling; communication with students; continued use of the funding formula approach; allocation of campus fiscal and human resources; and the use of segregated fees for the urban corridor students. Demographic data on students in the urban corridor and examples of campus programs and services for part-time and commuter students are appended. (SW)
